Hi, In aerospike manual I can see that when using file for aerospike, the max size is 2TB.
There is no limitation in the manual regarding raw device size.
I saw one of the guys from aerospike answer to a post saying there is a 2TB limitation for file and device as well.
can you make things clear? is there a 2TB limitation for devices as well?
this is from the manual:
Recipe for an SSD Storage Engine The minimal configuration for an SSD namespace requires setting storage-engine to device and adding a device parameter for each SSD to be used by this namespace. In addition, memory-size may need to be changed from the default of 4GB to a size appropriate for the expected primary index size. For assistance in sizing the primary index, please refer to the Sizing Guide. For performance, we recommend reducing the write-block-size from the default of 1MB to 128 Kb on SSD backed namespaces.
Recipe for a HDD Storage Engine with Data in Memory The minimal configuration for an HDD with Data-in-Memory namespace involves setting storage-engine to device, setting data-in-memory to true, and finally providing a list of file parameters to indicate where data will be persisted. Also filesize needs to be large enough to support the size of the data on disk (with a maximum allowed value of 2 TiB). Lastly, memory-size may need adjusted from the default of 4GB to a size appropriate to handle the expected primary index size and the expected size of the data in memory. For assistance sizing filesize or memory-size please refer to our Sizing Guide.
